country and sure it could help the president in the short term too. >> in a sense, sympathize with the man. congress could you please do it, because i don't have the most effective tool. and he gets stuck doing it. because they don't. do you think this helps the president? if the american people suddenly feel, look, whether they get more signals, that better naeshg has this under control, we're going to get some help? >> at this point, it won't have impact on jobs. i think the market has already taken it into consideration. it's not going to have an immediate impact on 401ks. but, look, the election for most people, if you're out of work or looking for work or stopped looking for work or having trouble making ends meet, whether the unemployment rate is 8.1% or 8.3%, that's not what you're voting on. you're more likely voting on the trend. >> even though it's not going down for the right reasons. a down trend, you know, historically you would say that would help the president.
